The Carlton County Sheriff's Office says that 22-year-old Moshood Kayode Olad Alad Itabiyi, of Brooklyn Park, was charged Friday for allegedly robbing Northview Bank in Barnum.
Authorities say Itabiyi walked into the bank around 3:35 p.m. Thursday afternoon, brandished a replica handgun, and demanded money from a teller.
According to the Carlton County Sheriff's Office, as Itabiyi fled the scene he realized he locked his keys in the getaway car. Authorities say he admitted to going into a garage, stealing a hammer, and breaking the window of his car to get in.
The suspect was pulled over by a Moose Lake officer on Interstate 35 for a traffic stop, but due to a lack of identifying information about the suspect, he was not detained.
After information about the suspect became available, Itabiyi was later arrested further down I-35 in Pine County.
Authorities say that they found the replica gun, money, and hammer in Itabiyi's vehicle.
Eight agencies, including the FBI, Minnesota State Patrol, and Minnesota DNR responded to the scene.
Itabiyi is charged with first-degree aggravated robbery and third-degree burglary.
